Unleash the WOW

Celebrating our employees who unleash the potential of people and technology

This award goes to Joseph Byer

Congratulations to Joseph Byer, a Presales Client Hardware Manager in Toronto, for winning a 2017 Jone Panavas Leadership Award. Joe has been described as the “glue” that pulls everyone around him together.

He is known for consistently stepping-up to lead and execute both professional and personal development projects. When he’s not busy solving business challenges for customers, he’s supporting the Softchoice D.O.G. Committee, advocating for Softchoice Cares, and organizing his own fundraising events.

At our busiest time of the year, in December, he selflessly volunteered to help co-ordinate the fulfillment of our Softchoice Cares Power Up technology grants to seven elementary schools across North America. That meant spending hours on the phone with the schools, school boards, and our partner Lenovo to squeeze every last laptop and tablet out of the grant money possible to ensure as many kids in those underprivileged communities were given every opportunity to succeed.

Above all else, he is a man with an unrelenting passion for his work, has a giving heart, and is an all-around cool guy!

The highest honor at Softchoice, the Jone Panavas Leadership Award exemplifies the qualities of our fearless founder. The award celebrates individuals who are the gold standard of Softchoice's values, go-to teammates, and who demonstrate outstanding personal leadership and customer passion. Recipients of this award are recognized in front of the entire organization at Softchoice’s annual all-company conference.
